County Council offices in five Tipperary locations will open books of condolence today for shocked rugby fans, following the sudden death of Munster Head Coach Anthony Foley.
The Munster and Ireland international player passed away in Paris at the weekend, where Munster were due to face Racing 92 and his old team mate Ronan O’Gara in their first European Champions Cup match of the season.
Rugby fans can express their words of condolence at five County Council offices – Clonmel, Nenagh, Tipperary Town, Carrick on Suir and Thurles. The books will open at 12noon today (Monday).
As a mark of respect all seven local authorities in Munster (Clare County Council; Cork City Council; Cork County Council; Kerry County Council; Limerick City and County Council; Tipperary County Council; Waterford City and County Council) will open books of condolence today.
This will allow all Munster Rugby supporters from the province to express their sympathies on the sudden passing of one of Munster’s most faithful and best players.
The Irish flag will also be flown at half mast outside the local authority offices.
